U.S. Department of Transportation to Release Broad Agency Announcement for Vehicle-to-Everything Communications Devices for Safety Band Spectrum Testing
This month, the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) plans to issue a broad agency announcement (BAA) to procure prototype or commercially available, off-the-shelf, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications devices to support the U.S. DOT's 5.9 GHz "Safety Band" spectrum testing. The devices will be used to evaluate the safety, performance, and capabilities of available equipment, devices, and underlying technologies through both small- and large-scale testing, including scalability and congestion, interoperability, and complex transportation scenarios.
The FHWA anticipates awarding multiple, firm-fixed priced contracts as a result of the BAA. The period of performance for each contract shall not exceed 18 months from the effective date of the contract award.
